As it turns out, capital investment strategists and trendy shoppers are not all that different. We more or less have the same goals-increased ROI with minimum risk potential. Finding a balance between return and risk is important to the investor's diversified portfolio and the chic shopper's closet. I recently had lunch with a good friend of mine who is now one of New York's most established capital strategists, Sam Tabar and we had a good laugh comparing our insights. And of course, we traded savings pointers for style pointers. CNBC recently did an article on Sam talking investment and commodities selection strategies. Yeah. He's kind of a big deal.
Sam Tabar is highly knowledgeable about investment strategies and, it just so happens that he holds a law degree from Columbia, so, if you check out his site, samtabar.com you'll see that he's kind of a rockstar. Sam has worked for several notable firms, and his experience in the legal arena includes working with hedge funds and other types of investments.
The Importance of Properly Managed Funds
When you are making an investment decision about commodities, Tabar recommends that you take a closer look at who is managing the fund. It is not enough to simply know what commodities are included in the fund. You need to know who is making the decisions about the investments. Consider researching the track record of the manager, his experience, his education level and other important factors. Having a properly allocated fund now is great, but the manager will need to have the education and experience to know when to make trades so that the fund continues to perform well for you in the months and years to come.
Conducting Research Before Making an Investment
It can be nearly impossible to fully predict how well an investment will perform going forward into the future, but when it comes to commodities funds, the fact is that history can be a great predictor. There are many factors that can drive the value of an investment upward or downward, and monitoring each of the factors can be burdensome. But if anybody knows how to make a good solid assessment, its Sam Tabar. He knows how to research and dig up all kinds of stuff on a particular fund so you will have a better idea about what to expect with the performance of the fund going forward.
Sam Tabar has been thoroughly educated at some of the top educational institutions in the world, and he also has worked in both a financial and legal capacity at some of the leading legal firms in the world. He understands the risks and rewards associated with different types of investment opportunities. If you are thinking about investing in commodities in the near future, you may consider following some of his words of wisdom.
